Project description

Citizen energy communities for increased renewable energy capacity

The achievement of the EU climate targets for 2030 will be facilitated by the widespread adoption of renewable energy. Hosting capacity can be reached through the market uptake of citizen energy communities (CEC). The EU-funded LIGHTNESS project will increase the renewable energy capacity through social engagement, a regulatory roadmap, a low-cost technological package and innovative business models. The project aims to reduce final energy consumption and CO2 emissions with the implementation of ambitious end users' engagement plans that will directly involve more than 500 households and more than 30 tertiary buildings. The LIGHTNESS solution will establish digital twins for the integrated assessment of CEC case studies in five EU countries.
